Each year, the University Center for Social and Urban Research (UCSUR) awards the Steven D. Manners Faculty Development Awards to promising research projects in the social, behavioral, and policy sciences on campus. These awards honor the memory of Steve Manners, a sociologist who began working at the Center in 1974 and served as its Assistant Director from 1989 until his death in September 2000. His research and service to the Center and the University community were dedicated to improving social conditions in the urban environment.

We will make two awards of up to $10,000 each. Faculty may apply for Research Development Grants intended to support pilot research in the social, behavioral, and policy sciences. Special consideration will be given to applications which are related to areas of particular interest to UCSUR or applications utilizing data collected by UCSUR.
